What's included?

If you are confused about how the primary and caucus systems work in the various states, or how the presidential campaigning process works, this little booklet may be just what you're looking for. Catherine goes through the differences between a primary and a caucus, open and closed, proportional distribution versus "winner take all," and pledged and unpledged delegates. She will give you the information you need so that you and your students can better understand the process, including an activity that will help them better see how it all works together.

Two additional files have been added - one with an updated chart for each of the two parties and their delegate counts.
